Abstract: Paper In the wake of a big shift of the world from the manual patient data management system to the automated process, many technologies have emerged. Needless to say that EMR is one epitome of such technological evolutions in the healthcare field. Though many hospitals as well as healthcare entities have acknowledged this and marching their services towards this change, some laggards persist. The present research tried to re-emphasize the significance of EMR by bringing the effect of EMR system on the group of stakeholders like patients, physicians and businesses from the response of hospital staff. The data, thus collected by sharing the google questionnaire to the staff of both type of branches has fetched 325 responses from the non-EMR implemented hospitals and 308 responses from the EMR implemented hospitals. It is obtained from the results that all the workflows are vital for the process of EMR implementation and are inter-dependent.
